    (CNN) -- In a historic turnaround, the ballot box is showing America's shifting attitudes about same-sex marriage. After gay marriage rights died at the polls dozens of times in the past, on Tuesday they passed in at least two states. Rarely do popular votes reflect such dramatic social changes. The result: Maryland and Maine will now allow couples like Cyrino Patane and James Trinidad to tie the knot. The Maryland couple has been together for seven years, and now, after the historic vote, they plan to marry in the next six months to a year.

    As usual, Drudge has put Obama’s picture up around words that could be taken as innuendo. Notice the proximity of the word “polling” to the pic of Obama under the sex story tease…polling as in, well, the kind of “polling” Obama enjoyed at Man’s Country Bathhouse in Chicago. Remember that today is Halloween. It’s a gay high-drinking day. Most gays who could get off work have been drinking since early in the morning today. Matt Drudge has probably had a few at this point. He could just be playing games and teasing people for fun. Or, today really could...

    A Santa Clara elementary school principal charged Monday with six drug counts also had 10 hidden cameras in his San Francisco apartment, including one in a teddy bear, according to a police report. Eric Lewis, 42, was arrested Thursday at the Caltrain station at 4th and King streets in San Francisco on charges of furnishing methamphetamine and GHB, a date-rape drug, to an undercover drug officer. They also found 10 mini cameras inside a bedroom closet, including at least one that was hidden as the nose of a teddy bear. Other cameras were concealed in a coat hanger, a lighter...

    TORRANCE, CA, August 31, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Manuel Castro may have accused Chick-fil-A of peddling hate, but police say they have determined that he wasn’t motivated by hate when he vandalized a Chick-fil-A restaurant earlier this month. Castro, a gay activist, had scrawled the words “Tastes Like Hate,” along with a cow holding a paintbrush, on the side of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Torrance, California, on “National Same-Sex Kiss Day” – an event organized to protest company CEO Dan Cathy’s stance in support of traditional marriage. “National Same-Sex Kiss Day” followed on the heels of Chick-fil-A “Appreciation Day,” on...

    A notary in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo has sparked controversy by accepting a civil union between three people. Public Notary Claudia do Nascimento Domingues has said the man and two women should be entitled to family rights. She says there is nothing in law to prevent such an arrangement. But the move has angered some religious groups, while one lawyer described it as "absurd and totally illegal". The three individuals, who have declined to speak to the press, have lived in Rio de Janeiro together for three years and share bills and other expenses. Ms Domingues says they...

Unlike far-right neo-fascist Nazis like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson who want nothing more than to subjugate the working class, Barack and his loyal socialist supporters, like myself, will fight to end suffering and inequality! Conservatives want nothing more than to endanger the people.

    BOISE, Idaho -- Former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Craig aims to fend off a federal election lawsuit against him by arguing his infamous July 11, 2007, Minneapolis airport bathroom visit that ended in his sex-sting arrest was part of his official Senate business. Craig is hoping to avoid repaying $217,000 in campaign funds the Federal Election Commission claims he misused to defend himself. The FEC sued Craig in June in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., alleging he converted the campaign money to personal use by spending it on his legal defense after he was accused of soliciting sex in...

    A federal judge this week refused to void the Tennessee Democratic primary for U.S. Senate won by an anti-gay candidate the party has disavowed. --snip-- The petition contended that the party committed fraud because it could have kept Clayton off the ballot by meeting an April deadline to tell the state he wasn't a bona fide Democrat under the party's by-laws. The lawsuit also claimed the state's alphabetical arrangement of candidates' names on the ballot creates an unfair advantage for some candidates. The petition noted Clayton's 2008 Senate race, in which he lost to former state Democratic Party chairman Bob...

    They already had a tough time getting noticed – overshadowed by the similarly-named American chain – but metro Toronto chicken restaurant Chick-Felay’s has been unwittingly pulled into a gay-marriage controversy it didn’t create. The furor was sparked, of course, by Chick-fil-A, the major chain based thousands of miles away in Atlanta, Ga., but Chick-Felay’s has been forced to assure incensed customers that they aren’t part of it. Chick-Felay’s staff was understandably confused when a few patrons accused them of working at a “discriminatory” company or refused to pay after ordering. ”The servers were like, ‘What’s going on?’” Chick-Felay’s founder and...

    Vandals at a Chick-Fil-A in Torrance left a message on the restaurant Friday during a week of protests in response to the company president's comments regarding same-sex marriage. "Tastes Like Hate" and a cow with a paint brush appeared on the Torrance restaurant early Friday as same-sex marriage activists planned a "National Same-Sex Kiss Day" at Chick-fil-A locations nationwide. The kiss-in comes two days after a "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," which resulted in what the Georgia-based chain called a "record-setting" day. The company's executive vice president of marketing declined to offer sales figures to NBC News. Participants in Friday's counter-protest will...

Amid all the girl power that Ride taught women, one barrier the first American woman in space chose not to break was sexuality. When she died on Monday at age 61 from pancreatic cancer, it emerged that Ride had a partner. As one friend on Facebook wrote,...

    “Gay” is a word that came out of the slang of homosexuals and established itself as a noun and an adjective meaning primarily “male homosexual” but also on occasion “female homosexual” in which case it becomes a synonym for “lesbian.” You can’t blame them for wanting a short term in general use in place of a five-syllable tongue-twister. The problem is that they misspelled the word. The correct spelling is “gey.” It will take some time since there are no immortals (as in France) out there ready to issue a proclamation from above but “gey” will eventually appear and entirely...

Third District Judge Robin Reese on Monday sentenced Shawn Thomas Whiting, 34, to a one- to-15-year prison term on four second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Whiting pleaded guilty to the charges in April. He originally faced a total of 20 counts of the same charge, but the 16 additional counts were dismissed in exchange for the man's plea. Reese ordered the man to pay for the cost of counseling for his victims. The Utah...

    Last summer, gays in the military dared not admit their sexual orientation. This summer, the Pentagon will salute them, marking June as gay pride month just as it has marked other celebrations honoring racial or ethnic groups. In the latest remarkable sign of change since the military repealed the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, the Defense Department will soon hold its first event to recognize gay and lesbian troops. It comes nine months after repeal of the policy that had banned gay troops from serving openly and forced more than 13,500 service members out of the armed forces.

    Recently, Barack Obama mysteriously ‘evolved’ his position on gay ‘marriage’ the day after his VP, Joe Biden, took the same position on national television. For someone who’s been avoiding the question for as long as he has, that’s a mighty quick evolution, I’d say. All razzing aside, it’s blatantly apparent to anyone with two working brain cells, that Obama was simply pushed into endorsing same sex ‘marriage’ by his loose lipped VP. It’s not the first, nor will it likely be the last time that Joe Biden accidentally pushes his boss into taking a public stance that hurts him politically....

The ad, Gawker notes, follows the American Family Association's One Million Moms' attempt to launch a boycott over DeGeneres' hiring earlier this year.

    One of the most incredible ironies of modern American life, since the cultural deterioration which began in earnest in the 1960s, is that you no longer have to explain many aspects of the "Birds and the Bees" to children, however, to an increasing number of adults you do. The fact that there is even a debate on so-called "same sex marriage" is evidence of this. It is out of the experience of males and females who have been rearing kids for millennia that marriage evolved. This is due in large part to the long-term commitment it takes to raise a...

    In a gutsy move, Newsweek has released the cover of their next issue, on the cover of which they depict President Obama with a rainbow halo and the title of 'The First Gay President'. The news-magazine, which hits stands Monday, is using the shock factor of labeling the straight, married, father-of-two President to draw attention to itself. Tina Brown, who heads the magazine and it's sister website The Daily Beast, is known for her appreciation of controversial covers to help boost public interest and sales.

    Some prominent Black pastors have become staunchly critical of President Barack Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage, with some who formerly backed and celebrated his ascent now turning their backs. A Texas pastor who once led the Southern Baptist Convention in introducing a resolution that recognized Obama’s historic achievement has voiced his displeasure with the president’s support and approval of gays, reports the Associated Baptist Press.

    A Florida pastor considered to be President Obama's spiritual adviser says he was disappointed by the president's decision to publicly announce his support for same-sex marriage. The Rev. Joel Hunter told MyFoxOrlando that the president called him before his announcement aired. Hunter, the evangelical pastor of the 15,000 member Northland church in Longwood, said the decision makes it harder to support the president though he will continue to do so.

    Today, I was asked a direct question and gave a direct answer: I believe that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry. I hope you'll take a moment to watch the conversation, consider it, and weigh in yourself on behalf of marriage equality: http://my.barackobama.com/Marriage I've always believed that gay and lesbian Americans should be treated fairly and equally. I was reluctant to use the term marriage because of the very powerful traditions it evokes. And I thought civil union laws that conferred legal rights upon gay and lesbian couples were a solution. But over the course of several years I've...

    An absolutely inevitable headline, although its somewhat awkward timing is sure to raise a few eyebrows.  President Obama was expected to come around on this issue after the 2012 election, but this week's firestorm finally pushed the White House's lame and cynical  "he's evolving" formulation to the brink.  Caught in an untenable position, Obama at last decided to share his true thoughts on same-sex marriage with the American people, via a hastily-arranged interview with ABC News (video HERE):   "I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and...

    LUSAKA, April 27, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In the face of U.S. threats to cut off foreign aid, President Yahya Jammeh defended Gambian laws banning homosexual behavior in comments to the country’s National Assembly last Friday. “If you want us to be ungodly for you to give us aid, take your aid away, we will survive,” said Jammeh, in comments that were reported by the Daily Observer. “We will rather eat grass than accept this ungodly evil attitude that is anti-God, anti-human and anti-creation.” The country’s stance against homosexual behavior has come under increased scrutiny after President Obama announced in December...

    WASHINGTON (BP) -- Perhaps trying to send a message to gay activists who want him to do more, President Obama's re-election website has posted a timeline of 40 specific accomplishments his administration has made for the gay community -- a timeline that no doubt will be referenced both by his supporters and opponents in the coming months. The rainbow-colored timeline begins in June 2009, when he ordered the federal government to extend some benefits to the partners of gay federal employees, and ends in March of this year, when he announced his opposition to a North Carolina constitutional amendment that...

    An influential Iranian cleric who is entitled to issue juristic rulings according to the Sharia law, has condemned western lawmakers involved in the decriminalisation of homosexuality, saying those politicians are lower than animals. Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli, an Islamic scholar based in Iran's holy city of Qom, said in a speech among his followers that homosexuals are inferior to dogs and pigs, according to the news website Khabaronline. "If a society commits a new sin, it will face a new punishment," he said while interpreting Qur'anic verses about prophet Lot whose tribe Isalmic scholars say was punished by God for sodomy....
